Winner: Excellence in Course Innovation
Oxford Discover
Oxford Discover is a course that aims to tap into students’ natural curiosity. It enables them to ask their own questions, find their own answers, and explore the world around them. This approach to language learning and literacy, supported by a controlled grammar and skills syllabus, aims to help students achieve near-native fluency in English. The judges described the winner as "Genuinely innovative in the way 21st century skills are built into the whole course."
Nominee: Excellence in Course Innovation
Unlock - Listening and Speaking
Unlock - Reading and Writing
Unlock is a four-level academic skills course that combines thought-provoking video from Discovery Education™ with carefully scaffolded exercises and a fresh approach to critical thinking skills. Critical thinking sections give students frameworks to formulate their own opinions and express themselves effectively in the end-of-unit academic tasks. Unique research into common learner errors (using the Cambridge English Corpus) focuses the language used in Unlock on those areas learners find most challenging. 
Winner: Innovation in Learner Resources
Oxford Learner's Dictionary of Academic English Oxford University Press, with Paragon Software GmbH (app) The Oxford Learner’s Dictionary of Academic English helps students learn the language they need to write academic English, whether they are preparing for academic study on an EAP course or already at university or college.
Informed by the 85-million-word Oxford Corpus of Academic English, the dictionary shows how general English words are used in different ways across academic subject areas. The judges described the winner as "A very useful tool for EAP students and teachers, bringing valuable new resources together in one place."
Nominee: Excellence in Course Innovation
Atama-ii Graded Reader Series
Atama-ii Books
Atama-ii is a series of beginner level easy-English graded readers for ages 11 and up. 
The series follows an interactive gamebook format, in which the reader takes on the role of the main character and makes plot choices at set points in the story. These choices lead to one of eight different endings. Some of the Atama-ii titles have been selected as finalists for the LLL(Language Learner Literature) Awards 2015. Despite their simplicity, the Atama-ii titles are interesting and engaging. Some are pure adventure, some are funny, and some are more suspenseful. Some may give readers a taste of history, or world events, or an aspect of science. 
Nominee: Innovation in Teacher Resources
Translation and Own-language Activities Cambridge University Press
Translation and Own-language Activities provides structured, practical advice and guidance for using students’ own languages within ELT classrooms. 
Taking into account both the growing interest and concerns about use of translation in English lessons, the book presents effective ways of integrating carefully chosen activities, covering themes such as tools, language skills, language focus and techniques. The practical activities range from using bilingual dictionaries to translating long texts, with a number of tasks drawing on easy-to-use web tools. The book also considers the relationship between translation and intercultural understanding.
More new ELT resource books are available on ELTBOOKS, all at 20% off!
